Day 1: Lauterbrunnen Waterfalls – Mountain Trekking
Take a pleasant ride on a cable car from Lauterbrunnen to an elevation of 4885 ft where the glorious Mountain View Trail begins, this trail is ideal for nature lovers, photographers, hikers, or even casual walkers. This is a panoramic hike with fantastic views of the world-famous icy icons, the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau. The trail takes you off the beaten track over Lauterbrunnen Valley for about two hrs. After an elevation gain of over 400 mts. you arrive in Mürren (elevation 5,397 feet). You’ll find plenty of viewpoints along the way, perfect to Photograph alpine panoramas with the Jungfrau as the glorious Centrepiece. We can assist you in taking better photographs along this scenic tour and also we will be happy to portrait you and your group with a jaw-dropping background of the Bernese Alps.
Continuing on through Mürren the road descends through a mix of modern apartments and centuries-old farmhouses before descending with a lovely cable car ride to Stechelberg. Take a 7-minute bus ride to Trümmelbach Falls, which is one of those “must-see” natural wonders. It’s a series of 10 pounding waterfalls that have cut through the rock to form immense underground channels and torrents. Fed by the glaciers of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau, 20,000 liters of water per second pound their way through the chasm to the valley below. This underground spectacle is made ingeniously and perfectly accessible by a tunnel funicular and a series of illuminated tunnels, galleries, and balconies.
After, return to Lauterbrunnen by bus. From the bus stop, you can already enjoy the beauty of the “Staubbach” Waterfall. Anyone who has ever wanted to meet one of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s “muses” is in the right place in the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The Prince of Poetry was inspired by the imposing Staubbach Falls for his work “Song of the Spirits Over the Waters”. Lauterbrunnen’s landmark is approximately 300 meters (1000 ft) above the vertical rock face being the third highest waterfall in Switzerland – a natural display of a quality that can only be seen here. From the foot of the waterfall, a path leads up to the Staubbach Gallery. After a short climb takes you right up to, and then behind the curtain of water. After a few switchbacks, you enter a long tunnel and then cling to the edge of the cliff as water swirls in the air all around you. You’ll get wet. You’ll have fun. The spray fountains, which gave their name to the waterfall, can be observed here up close.
